Best Ice Cream (or Frozen Treat) in Brooklyn!

uploaded by Chad Schneider.

Ice cream has always had a special place in my heart. As a young boy I was completely engulfed in the homemade ice cream scene. My parents decided to open an ice cream store in Jamaica Plain, Boston. The name of the store was “The Cone-Servatory” and it was delicious. The store did well for a few years but due to “Reganomics” killing many small businesses in the 80’s the store didn’t make it and for many years I wasn’t a huge fan of ice cream. Well that was then and this is Brooklyn! There are more than enough ice cream reasons to enjoy a cone of pure, yogurt “trugoy”, gelato and cannonballs in this generous borough.

I can’t get them all so please tell us your favorite from the list or one that we may have missed!
